Around mile 8 my knees and arches were screaming at me but I pulled through until mile 10. At this point I needed to take a 1 minute walk to eat my Gu. I picked it back up and only stopped to walk again at mile 11, I was tired everywhere but again I only walked for a minute. I finished my run and walked the last few steps to my door.
I felt so accomplished it was great, even though I was very tired I pushed through it and made it to the end. This is the song that I put on when I felt too tired to keep running, the lyrics really helped me. Stronger by Kelly Clarkson was definitely my jam this run.
After icing, rolling my heals on a tennis ball and taking a ice bath with soothing crystals I had my post workout meal. I wasn't too hungry but I knew I needed the fuel. I grilled some chicken, re-heated beets and had a piece of my grandmas spinach lasagna.
What are you favorite songs to run to?
